    I cannot tell you how happy I am to have found this newsletter. These articles are speaking to me! I wonder sometimes, too, how much responsibility is mine to educate someone on this disease when I am discovering more fun little facts myself every day by having it, such as dental issues, waking up one day from a nap to feel wonderful, the next day feeling like I cannot get out of bed – you know the drill. My oldest sister informed me the other day she felt “I brought this disease on myself” by worrying too much and letting things get to me. She said she read an article on it!! I calmed explained that was not the case and told her (again) I would send her a very brief synopsis of the disease from The Mayo Clinic. I haven’t heard from her since. I guess my point is sometimes I think people are willfully ignorant of the facts, and unless they go through it themselves, there will be no changing their minds, sadly.
